Cook very slowly at low/medium heat in a large electric fry pan. Stir often, adding more milk as rice absorbs it. Cook for 4-5 hours. Near the end of cooking, add 1 cup half and half instead of milk. Turn into a casserole dish and top with real butter (melted) and sprinkle with raisins and cinnamon and sugar. Keep warm in a very slow (250 degrees F) oven until serving. This is sinfully rich and very good.
Easy Pumpkin Cake
Begin with a yellow cake mix, add eggs, sugar, oil, canned pumpkin and a hint of pumpkin pie spice. Dust with confectioners' sugar or frost with cream cheese icing. For extra crunch, add 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans to the batter. The bright orange of pumpkin is a giveaway that it is loaded with an important antioxidant beta-carotene. It is converted to vitamin A in the body and protects against some diseases. Leftovers should be covered and placed in the refrigerator.
Preparation time: About 10 minutes.
Equipment you'll need: Electric mixer, mixing bowl, measuring spoons, can opener, spatula, and a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan.
Safety: Use dry potholders to put baking pan into the oven and remove. Use dry hands to attach mixer cord to electric outlet and remove. Ask for adult supervision when using the electric mixer.

This is a pleasing and simple recipe much like the one I use for bread pudding. It is nice to have for the holidays, especially around the fall and winter when the weather is chilly. It would be good too as a nice after dinner of beef stew or pot roast. A real New England treat!
